Acer Completes Gateway CEO Divestiture
Gateway CEOs are like Spinal Tap drummers–they don’t seem to last very long. The company has had five CEOs (four permanent and one interim) in six years. And now the fifth is departing as well.
Gateway CEO Ed Coleman, who joined the company in September 2006, announced his resignation today. He’ll leave the company in January, handing over his responsibilities to Rudi Schmidleithner, president of American operations for Acer, the PC maker that acquired Gateway this summer.
